Pawley's Island

Pawley's Island sits between the Atlantic Ocean and the Waccamaw River in South Carolina. It is one of the oldest resort areas on the East Coast, and I had the good fortune to spend five sunny days there over Columbus Day weekend while attending a friend's wedding.

Unlike Myrtle Beach, its honky-tonk neighbor to the north, Pawley's prides itself on being quaint and "shabby chic." Less than 200 people live on the 3-mile stretch of land, but vacation homes abound. We stayed at this fabulous spot, with the ocean (complete with frolicking dolphins) out our back door:

Highlights of the weekend included walking the expansive beach and taking in the wild life,Pawley's Island 052biking along the shore, shopping at the legendary Hammock Shops (yes, the hammock was created here 120 years ago) and antique shops of historic Georgetown,

But of course the real highlight of the trip was seeing our friends Anna & Jeremy tie the knot, and they did so at the beautiful Brookgreen Gardens and sculpture park (wish I could've explored more of this place).

You and me both, Andrew. Especially now that it's freezing in Boston!

This is great! I miss South Carlina. The first picture makes me want to grab a plane ticket, a cooler, and a magic wand to turn the clock forward to next July.
